Solutions

Chapter 1.3, Problem 15E
To determine

To sketch: The function y=x2 by hand without plotting any points and then graph of the function y=x24x+5 .

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

It is given that y=x24x+5 .

Express the given function as follows.

y=x24x+5=x24x+4+1=(x2)2+1

Thus, draw the graph of y=(x2)2+1 .

The standard graph of the function y=x2 is roughly drawn as shown below in Figure 1.

Then, draw the graph of y=(x2)2 , shift the graph y=x2 by 2 units to the right. Thus, the graph of y=(x2)2 is shown below in Figure 2.

From Figure 2, it is observed that Figure 1 is shifted 2 units to the right.

To draw the graph of y=(x2)2+1 , shift the graph y=(x2)2 by 1 unit upward. Thus, the graph of y=(x2)2+1 is shown below in Figure 3.

Observe that Figure 3is obtainedfrom Figure 1 in such a way that it is shifted 2 units to the right and then shifted 1 unit upward.
